HORIZONS OF SCIENCE

An interdisciplinary seminar HORIZONS OF SCIENCE is organized by scholars in natural and social sciences and humanities from several universities and academic research institutes in Lviv. It aims to serve as a meeting place where state-of-the-art problems of modern science are discussed on the level comprehensive for an ‘uninitiated’ audience. Besides obvious popularisation of scientific ideas the seminar promotes the quest for common interdisciplinary approaches to various problems. Please contact Yurij Holovatch , Yaroslav Hrytsak , Bohdan Novosyadlyj or Yaroslav Prytula with your suggestions.
